Top Up LLB programs

Bachelor's in Law

Starts in April, July, October and January

Why study this course?

Through participation in this top up llb program, you will be able to convert your Graduate Certificate in Law (GDL), which is also referred to as the Common Professional Exam, into a complete Bachelor of Laws degree in Law. If you already have a degree in a subject other than law, you can complete the GDL and the top-up coursework to earn a Bachelor of Law degree in just two years rather than the typical three.

We intend for our LLB to be the very first undergraduate law degree that may be considered really professional.

Learning the law is the first step toward a broad, dynamic, and interesting legal profession. It provides more opportunities for variety than nearly any other occupation, whether you wish to work as a business secretary, a solicitor, a paralegal, or even as a judge in the highest court. It is also one of the greatest qualifications for moving on to thrive in other areas, such as the medical field or the legal field. our alums are now working in a variety of fields all around the world, including politics, media, business, human resources, and finance, among others.

Information of the Program and its Execution

These credits will take the place of the obligatory courses that students on the LLB(Hons) full-time degree would ordinarily be required to study, which are 120 foundation credits, 60 intermediate credits, and 60 honors credits respectively. Students who enroll in the full-time program will take a total of 120 choice modules, split evenly between the intermediate level and the honors level.

Students who attend the Accelerated program will have their previous non-law honors degree evaluated and be granted either 60 intermediate credits or 60 honours credits, whichever is higher. During the course of two years, you will need to earn 60 credits at the intermediate level and another 60 credits at the honors level. In all, you will need 120 credits at the foundation level.


We focus on employability and developing skills and experience employers appreciate. Top-up degrees teach you about your desired field. Learning will be both theoretical and practical for you to experience. You will start to acquire the essential intellectual and practical legal abilities, such as analysis, problem-solving, and legal reasoning, which are all crucial in the legal profession.
Several local and global firms can use your abilities. Our Employability Challenge Weeks and Leadership Challenge will provide you experience. Both provide creative initiatives, industry presentations, and seminars. You’ll also get help with application forms and CVs.
